Music academy awards 23 scholarships to Gambian artistes


Ibraheem Ceesay, the executive director of Mangdingmorry Academy of Music said the musicians will undergo a one-year intensive training. He said the academy felt that if Gambian artistes have the training they need they will be able to make headway in their careers.

Ceesay urged the second badge to emulate the first badge which took the course with dedication and focus, and are now doing a lot of progress in the music industry.

Muhammad Sumareh, programme coordinator of MAM, said the new intakes started classes on February 2, from Monday to Wednesday of every week. He said there is need for total commitment during the course.
